Ram devotee first

While speaking to the reporters on January 21, Maurya said that he is a Ram devotee first and deputy CM of the state later. He said, “I am happy that Ram Mandir is finally being constructed.” Maurya added that there is no compulsion on anyone to donate to the temple. If someone wishes to donate, he or she can do so as per their capacity.

“The cooperation of the entire nation is being sought for the construction of Ram temple as five generations have sacrificed their lives in the temple movement. In such a situation, this cooperation is being taken from everyone,” he added.
